The last Alice in Wonderland book-special silver bling book

Well here she is. The very last Alice in Wonderland book that I will make. She has had a great run and I thank you all for purchasing Alice in the past. This being the last Alice book, I wanted her to go out with  a bit of a blingy bang, so to speak.
  So I decided to go silver and bling her out. A little over the top I know, but being the last, she had to be special. She is available on my etsy store, and I hope where ever she ends up, she will bring joy and happiness.

Paris time book



I have been playing a little with silver lately and how I can make my books looked aged with it, without it being over the top blingy. (I'll leave that for my next book which I am about to upload). This book is inspired with my love of all things french, with it fine elegance and grace.
 This book is available on my etsy store..

Bird bath faux daguerrotype book



 Here is one of my latest book creations. Its modelled once again from and 1800's daguerrotype album. I just adore this little book. Such lovely details in the birds on the bird bath.
This book is available on my etsy store

She blogs annually... LOL

G-day there, Is there anyone that follows my blog anymore? Because i sure know I wouldnt after leaving it a year or so to blog. It seems to be an annual event for me, though now I have my garden in good shape after neally 2 years of remodelling, weeding and establishing. I am finding that I am back again at my desk finding my creative mojo again. And enjoying the process of inky gluey fingers instead of dirt and cracked skin from gardening..
Anyway I have been busy with making of course my beloved little books, not only for myself, but to sell on etsy.  Here's a selection of what I have been up to. And fingers crossed I shall blog more often. Until then get creative and if your interested in any of my books, just click on my etsy link on the side.
  Chow for now

Old but new


Hello there bloggers, I do hope this post finds you all well and fabulous. Well I know its been sometime since I posted let alone been creative. But since Christmas I have been squirrling a little time away each day to be a little bit crafty. And of course being a new year, its time for a new look for my popular Alice in wonderland books
 Unfortuately i have been forced to make them slighly larger with a different cover design as I just cant get the small alice design paper anymore. Only the larger, and sparingly at that. So I decided to try out a new decoration for the cover as well as the old design.  I have listed them on etsy and will be making more in the coming weeks.
 As for my absence here and etsy, after 20 years of being a military wife moving from one house to another, we decided to buy and I have had my head down the rabbit hole so to speak. Gardening that is, and I am loving it. Growing our own veg and designing new parts of the garden has only been a dream for 20yrs, and now its a reality and I am throughly enjoying the process. Oh and through in a 19mnth very active gorgeous little girl, a pre teen and a hubby, one has had her hands happily fullfilled. 
 But now we are settled, my itchy hands that have been soil stained for some months, now wish to go back to their old gluey, inked up hands for awhile yet. So more books to come, so stay tuned. Take care all
Love Sarah

Moth in a box

 A few weeks back, a poor little moth passed over on my back door step, and  I marveled at its beauty and wanted to preserve this little creature to admire. So I got making a little box for he/she from polymer clay.
 I wanted to have a box that was not only open at the top, but the bottom too, so you can view him/her from underneath, so i cut a little window on the bottom. Once I did that, I placed some text transparency inside and poured Ice Resin until the box was full of this wonderfully crystal clear magic. The resin made its wings see through, with just the slightest of colour but with so much detail.

 Here you can see the bottom with his/her little window. Love holding it up to the light, a little view finder magic.
And thats my little Moth in a box

One day I am going to make myself a book..

 One of these days I am going to make myself a little book just for me as I am finding it so hard parting with them on etsy. Though I know they are all going to lovely homes so that makes it a wee bit easier.
  It is now listed on etsy

Neally finished a couple of Halloween books and seriously they will be hard to part with as I love anything spooky and Halloween. And that will be enough book making for some time as I need to start packing up this house ready to move into our very own home (yeahh finally we will be home owners) I know not terribly exciting for some, but after 20 years travelling around the country with the army we are so ready to plant some roots, paint some rooms, and make a house a home. Finally our home. So for now off to pinterest for home inspiration..
Love Sarah
